FYI was at Victoria golf at Shinjuku just now and saw the XXIO8 fair woods for 31500 yen. Pretty good price I think ($300+ sgd). With Japanese shaft. Will look around more next few days but think can buy at this price Smile

$500 for XXIO fairway wood M800 shaft in Singapore. Go try Golf Partners near Tokyo Station.  I think cheaper there.

Thanks Ant, will go look see at Ueno side then maybe Golf Partners tomorrow. Interestingly had a few swings with the club at Victory Golf (only had regular flex).. from the results on the monitor he recommended a stiff shaft else another brand as XXIO's tend to have whippy shafts and were not so ideal for my swing speed which was >100mph.. a bit torn now haha

You are welcome.  Walking around Orchard anyway. 
Yes.. The R flex is really whippy. Am using SR now for the utility. If your Swing Speed is > 100. I think you probably need stiff. : )

Tried Golf Partner today and they were closed for stock take! Talk about bad luck! But the shops at UENO are selling the fairway woods for 35k yen (around SGD$400). Best price I've seen so far. So many brands, really a golfers paradise! Smile

Found and bought an almost new looking XXiO8 3 wood for 25907 yen at golf partners today. They had a few used ryoma d1 maxima at around 50k yen but condition didn't look that nice

If it is 50k Yen for Ryoma Maxima with aftermarket shaft, it is still ok

If you use hybrids, highly recommend Ryoma (3u or 4u depends on you).

Of course you did!
With the ryoma hybrid, you will burn the whole wallet!

How do you know they jacked up the price? By how much?

The exchange rate has been quite constant the last couple of months, unless you're comparing to a year or so ago Smile

Was there last Nov and bot the XXIO utility at SGD236 after conversion. Got same model last month with a diff loft at the same shop at SGD250 via a friend who was there on holiday. Though still cheaper than Singapore but the price very obviously has gone up. Don't know about JPY/SGD exchange rate history... maybe someone in financial sector can comment.... Laughing

Actually, in November the exchange rate for the SGD vs. JPY was higher than it is right now, around 1 SGD to 90+ yen, vs. now when it's around 1 SGD to 87 JPY.

May not have been a price increase, unless both cases you paid the sticker price for new clubs.. could have gotten a slight discount from the salesman when you bought vs. when your friend bought (i.e. not buying for himself so never ask for discount?)  Very Happy
